Learning to learn in adulthood

Uncover the levers and obstacles to learn continuously at all ages.


Learning across lifespan involves expanding the repertory of knowledge, along with technical and interpersonal know-how, at all ages.
But learning in aldulthood, particularly at work, also requires updating previous knowledge that have been progressively and extensively consolidated in memory and that can be retrieved automatically.
Updating and modifying previous knowledge in adulthood represent a cognitive challenge!

Advance in cognitive psychology and neuroscience reveal the pillars of learning and the brain dynamic to update previous knowledge and acquire new ones.
These scientific discoveries pinpoint the obstacles to learn at all ages and helps refine leaning methods suitable for adults.

In this conference, I will present the levers and obstacles to learn continuously in adulthood.
We will uncover the cognitive challenges that the brain faces to expand and update knowledge.
I will present the key brain-friendly techniques and best practices on learning how to learn.
